>It is the anti-systemd crowd who has become hysterical.
People really need to stop complaining about ad-hominem attacks on Lennart by using ad-hominem attacks against a massive group of people they don't know.
I don't care about systemd. I have it running on this debian machine because it was installed after the switch over. It's had it's problems like locking up during boot and shutdown but I've had similar issues with sysvinit too so I'm not going to use the "it broke a few times for me so it's bad" argument. Again, I don't care about systemd, but I am anti-the-steamrolling-of-many-fundamental-userland-components-that-everyone-including-systems-that-cant-run-systemd-need.
It's not written in the GPL or whatever but I think if you take over projects like udev you have a responsibility not to brake it for all of the users/use cases that don't fit with your "one daemon to rule them all" philosophy. Greg K-H giving up maintaining udev as an independent project was a massive mistake IMHO. Maybe I should have brought that up when he emailed me to ask how I wanted my commits to the kernel to be counted...
